MONCTON, NB, Feb. 20, 2012 /CNW/ - Landdrill International Inc. (TSXV: LDI) ("Landdrill" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has secured record drilling
commitments from mining companies in Canada and internationally for
Landdrill has entered into contracts with Canadian base metal & precious
metal mining companies for drilling totalling over 300,000 meters in
Quebec, Ontario and Labrador, requiring the usage of 18 of the
Company's Canadian-based drills, which represents an additional 100,000
meters booked than as at February 20, 2011.
The Company's Mexican operations also appear poised for record growth in
2012. Mexican contractual commitments to date for 2012 exceed 200,000
meters requiring 18 of the Company's Mexican-based drills, provided
such contracts are performed as expected.
The growth in contract meters in Canada and Mexico is attributable to
the Company's investment in additional drills, including through the
acquisition of the assets and operations of HD Drilling, s. de r.l. de
c.v. and Inflight S. de r.l. de c.v. of Mexico, during 2011.
Furthermore, the Company announces that demand in its Mongolian branches
for 2012 remains high and it anticipates further commitments to be
secured in the near future. We anticipate that these commitments will
represent an increase in revenues from our Mongolian branch over 2011.
Ron Goguen, Sr., the President and CEO of Landdrill said, "I am very pleased to announce the procurement of these commitments for
2012 to date. The contracts demonstrate the continued growth strategy
of the Company. The acquisition of drills during 2011 has permitted the
Company to increase its market share."
